2941 as of 4/25

Seasonal restaurants like 2941 change their menu all the time as new products become available (for example, here is a post from last Summer), so I like to try to keep stopping in and see what is new.  Here is a look at the menu as it was at the end of April.

Well Dined | 2941 Restaurant

Beef Tartare with baby kale, cornichon, Dijon mustard, fried potatoes.  Those potatoes were pretty killer.

Tart with mangalica ham, creme fraiche, and onion.  Good, but not great - I probably wouldn't order it again.

"Lobster Roll" with tomato gelee and avocado.  Very light and refreshing.


Sea Pearl Pt 2

Earlier this year I wrote about a restaurant called Sea Pearl, mostly in regards to their brunch.  That review was pretty positive.  I've been back a few more times for lunch with more mediocre results.

This lobster roll was pretty decent, but not my favorite in the area.  It's very herby, which isn't bad - I just don't prefer it personally.  I would say that Coastal Flats has better.  Also, though the garlic rosemary fries were good, I wasn't a fan of the boring side salad that came with.

This burger was pretty good with the caramelized and pickled onions.  But the foie gras was unnecessary.  I can't believe I'm saying that because it was the main reason I ordered the burger, but it just felt like it didn't belong (unlike the stellar version at Mockingbird Bistro in Houston, TX).

Lastly, the Hudson Valley roll was a huge flop.  Seared foie gras, raw tuna, and green apple with a balsamic plum wine reduction.  This just didn't work, and the foie had a weird bitter taste.  I noticed it on the burger, too, so however they are cooking their foie here is no good.

I think I'm going to be sticking to brunch for awhile.



I've written about 2941 before (here and here), but not since they revamped their restaurant to be a little more casual and less intimidating.  We had been checking their ever changing menu online, but nothing really caught our eye until recently.  Then, all of a sudden, the whole menu matched what we were craving and off we went!  Be aware that this menu is from a few months ago.


Steak tartare with basil, Parmesan, toasted bread, and micro greens.  This is really a 1 per person size, and trust me - you won't want to share.


Zucchini fritters with a feta and mint dip; salmon carpaccio.


Beet salad (sorry for the fuzzy photo - somebody was impatient to eat it).


Tuna tartare with avocado, crispy shallots, and jalapeno.  I was actually I little disappointed because the avocado was more like guacamole, which wasn't what I was looking for.  But by no means was it bad.


Asparagus ravioli with white asparagus, mint, thyme, burrata, and Parmesan.


Duck confit ravioli with tomato jam and fiddlehead ferns.


Yummy steak fritte dish.


Strawberry shortcake with coconut, shredded phyllo, and white tea ice cream.

Overall, everything was as fresh and beautiful as it's always been and the more relaxed atmosphere was refreshing.  I don't think the remarketing has done any damage to 2941 and I hope it helps to bring in more people.
